The Continuing Saga of Star Jones

Yesterday’s post about Star Jones joining WFME sure ruffled a lot of feathers, especially those of my regular readers.

Other people that had never come to this site in the first place left disparaging comments about Star and it started to make me question my choice in asking her to join us here at WMFE in August. But then I realized that I was letting the gossip and the press and the chaos get to me. I decided a perfect solution would be to get Star to potentially write a blog entry about why she made the choice so everyone could see how her intentions were good.

I didn’t get her to do that, but she said it would be OK for me to post the phone call I had with her this morning about this whole chaotic scenario. You can listen to our phone call here.

    Yeah. That’s her trademark rallying cry.

    Without your posts I would have no idea that there was a Star Jones saga. There just hasn’t been any other media coverage. Thanks for keeping me informed about minor celebrities.

    This was linked on another website (televison without pity) and I had to check it out. Brilliant. Well played, sir. Now to read your other stuff!

    First off who do you think you are? Star is going through a tramatic time in her life and you are concerned about some second rate “blog” —OBVIOUSLY for your own YOUR career. And before you even say it-when I clicked on this link, I thought it was a telephone interview for cnn or something. I guess you got your “blog” by posting the conversation on your website. That should generate a lot of comments. SHE DOESN’ T OWE YOU, BARBARA WALTERS, OR ABC ANYTHINGS. She’s done her time.You heard the woman on CNN–it will not be a circus. So you can take off your top hat and find another town to set up in.

    Paul,

    I cannot believe that you aired this call without my permission. Furthermore, it is illegal to record my call without first telling me. Please remove it promptly or you’ll be hearing from my lawyers. Feel free to contact me with any questions: Star@PaylessShoes.com

    Best,
    Star Jones

    PS: I also cannot believe that you wear parachute pants. Had I known that, we never would have been in negotiations in the first place.

    Wow, what a convincing argument. I’m so glad you two were able to iron things out.

    Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

    That phone conversation was funny. I almost believed it was real. Good editing.
